Weed of the Month

April's weed of the month is chickweed. A friend of mine, Teri, said "a weed is a plant I just don't know yet." Chickweed is one of the first to show up in spring and can choke out small starts such as carrots. It is edible and very rich in Vitamin A, folic acid, and iron, but it also looks great in the compost pile.
